A few code snippets for how you can quickly stand up a SQL database, and provide a REST API for DB read/writes
I was helping out a team at a hackday hosted at Hursley last week. One of the things they wanted for their hack was a SQL database to put sensor data in, which they could access via a REST API. And they wanted it in node.js.
I’d never used Node before, so I used this as a chance to give myself a first crash-course.
I’m not saying this is the way to do this in Node, as it’s the result of my first hour’s tinkering. But it worked, and I mostly wanted to share how quick and easy it was.
- Step 1 – My first Node webserver
- Step 2 – My first Node databases
- Step 3 – My first Node REST API
- Step 4 – REST API for a database
